(ATR=Registered Art Therapist, BC=Board Certified, LCAT=Licensed Creative Arts Therapist.


I am an artist. I am also an artist of life, in that I know how to turn every event into a step toward freedom. Years of meditation have changed my view of life and the world. Since then, being a therapist and helping people develop and become free of their emotional burdens has become my calling.


I have learned from the people who came to me to be helped, that my deepest calling is to work with the issues of deep trauma and abuse. I am happy and thankful to be able to do it.


I was born with the ability to feel the art of others as if I was inside of them when they created it. This helps me help others release what is ready to be released and flourish from within themselves.


Through years of meditation I have become aware of people’s energy. Everybody, even animals and plants, feel others’ energies and are influenced by them but are usually unaware of  it. The awareness is what makes the difference. The awareness makes it possible for me to feel and be free of the feeling at the same time. This is what makes it possible for me to help you be free too.

All the people who came to me to be helped benefited from our work together and became freer. I have not seen even one who did not benefit. In all cases, the changes that they experienced are permanent.



A bit of history

I have been making art from a very young age.

I started my career as a graphic designer and illustrator, designed about 200 book jackets and was involved in numerous projects.

I illustrated more than forty published children’s books and received many awards for my work in both design and illustration.

My last book “A Circle of Friends” (2003), story and illustration by me, was chosen by the organization IBBY (International Board on Books for Young People) in Switzerland, as one of 14 best books worldwide for children with special disabilities (2006).

I illustrated on a regular basis for The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal. I showed my fine art in a solo show in Gallery Roswita Tittel in Koln, Germany. I showed in “The Artery” www.arteryonline.com in Milford, Pennsylvania. I show now in different galleries around New York.


When my experience of life changed, I looked for a way to help others become less burdened by their suffering and more stable in their path of growth. This lead me to become an art therapist, find my unique way of working with art, and my deepest interest in deep trauma and abuse. I have helped many people change their lives.

I find your style so remarkable and unique, free non-imposing, sensitive and caring, yet intuitive and at the same time so observant of every little detail.
